The Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance takes place on August 21st and Aston Martin has announced plans to have their “strongest-ever presence” at the event.
As part of the festivities, the automaker will unveil a “very special, ultra-exclusive model” that celebrates the 10th anniversary of Q by Aston Martin. The company is keeping details under wraps, but hinted the vehicle “encapsulates the brand’s winning track bloodline with a nod to success at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.”
That won’t be the only new vehicle on display as the company will unveil a “truly thrilling performance focused model which continues the high-octane emotion and intense driving pleasure defined by breath-taking new models such as DBX707, V12 Vantage, and the uncompromising Aston Martin Valkyrie.” The mystery model will be unveiled on August 19th at a VIP event, before being shown over the weekend at Aston Martin Club 1913.

Aston Martin will also use the event to share “exciting development updates” about the mid-engine Valhalla. In particular, the car will be shown with a revised interior. The company didn’t elaborate, but said the cabin will have a unique seating position and F1-inspired ergonomics.
Last but not least, Aston Martin will showcase the DBX707. Invited guests will have the opportunity to test drive the vehicle and that will undoubtedly be a blast as the crossover features a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 developing 697 hp (520 kW / 707 PS) and 663 lb-ft (900 Nm) of torque. This enables the model to accelerate from 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in 3.1 seconds, before hitting a top speed of 193 mph (310 km/h).
Aston Martin’s Head of Global Marketing and Communications, Renato Bisignani, said “We look forward to celebrating Aston Martin’s new era of performance at Pebble Beach and displaying our iconic ultra-luxury models, including a world-first reveal of an exciting new model, and the public debut of another thrilling addition to our breathtaking portfolio.”
